Li’l Liza Jane


I heard this 1910 Minstrel Show hit performed by DJ Davis and the Brassy Knoll in the course of the final episode of the second season of Treme.

I wanted to hear it again, but the Treme version is not being offered in MP3. YouTube, at least, offered a decent version, which served as background for a fairly surreal Warner Brothers cartoon.

“Seniai Toli” (Long Distance)


A quaint, folkloristic animated history of Lithuania, from the Pre-Cambrian to today.

It probably won’t make much sense to the non-Lithuanians out there. The armored wolf you see at one point is a symbol of Lithuania. It seems that Grand Duke Gedymin took a nap while hunting and dreamed of an iron wolf. As the result of his dream, he founded the city of Vilnius. The transition from the Battle of Grunwald (1410) to the Third Partition (1795) is rather quick, but that is the linguistic nationalist perspective for you.

The depiction of the communists as crabs is, I think, some kind of linguistic pun.
